    The Open Web Application Security Project (or OWASP pronounced O'WASP) was started in September of 2001. At the time there was no central place where developers and security professionals could learn how to build secure web applications or test the security of their products. At the same time the commercial marketplace for web application started to evolve. Certain vendors were pedaling some significant marketing claims around products that really only tested a small portion of the problems web applications were facing; and service companies were marketing application security testing that really left companies with a false sense of security.

    OWASP is an open source reference point for system architects, developers, vendors, consumers and security professionals involved in Designing, Developing, Deploying and Testing the security of web applications and Web Services. In short the Open Web Application Securty Project aims to help everyone and anyone build more secure web applications and Web Services.
